Dear friends and family:
On behalf of Barbara and myself, I'd like to thank Alford Distributing and the Sunrunners Car Club for facilitating the blood drive on April 23 in Ed Quan's and my honor. Everyone's expressions of generosity including the food beverages, T-shirts and the blood-drop babies are deeply appreciated. There are not enough words to express our sincere appreciation of the kindness and concern our many caring friends in Imperial Valley have extended to us recently.
We'd especially like to thank those who worked so hard to support the drive: KXO radio, Imperial Valley Press, Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District, McNeece Mart, Imperial Valley Community Health Organization and Trish Burich-McNeece of Imperial Valley Blood Services for coordinating the event.
Most importantly, none of this would have been possible without the 86 people who donated blood. While we may not know each of you by name, you will forever be in our hearts. Without your compassion these efforts would not have achieved the overwhelming results.
